Recommended Posts

I just finished my third strip only 4 more to go. It's starting to get colder so this is going to be my main project. Wish me luck.

They're doing server maintenance/server moves sometime in the next 24 hours. Shouldn't be a huge outage, but of course it'll happen right when I want to check :P

an update, just started my last strip last night, the pic doesn't show the colours well, they are richer..now here is where I need opinions..should the border be mainly burgundy or green or a mix? I want to make sure it looks Christmasy.. I haven't sewn any strips together yet, after my yarn crisis last time I am waiting until all the strips are done O.O

I'm almost done! :eek

 

Friday night I finished the last strip and yesterday I started putting them together. I'm hoping I have enough black yarn to do a border. I'd really hate to have to order more just for that.

 

I'll try to post pictures pretty soon!

thank-you and thanks for sharing your pattern, it really is so easy and quick and I have enjoyed doing it..I would have been done ages ago if I didn't start the dress in thread...its hard to go from the thread to two strands of yarn ..so I have been working on one for a bit then the other

 

thanks again :)

Awwww ppor baby. Oh well, buck up. the joy of Flannelghan will be yours soon.

I have a couple of rows started for Dora's (maybe not my brightest idea) but I haven't gotten back to it yet.

 

My WIPs and UFO's are starting to take over again.

Oh amalin - such self control I do not have. I would work on the flannelghan and alternate it with the other (which is hopefully 1 strand) and this way you're excersizing your hands and switching off so they don't cramp:D

Does anybody know about how many skiens of yarn this uses??? I just frogged a blanket that I was making using 2 strands and was wondering if I might have enough to make this.

skeins come in different sizes. It takes a lot of yarn. Most of these ghans are running 5 - 6 pounds. No one's actually counted skeins yet as far as I know.

 

6 pounds x 16 ounces in a pound = 96 ounces

96 ounces divided by 7 ounce skeins = about 14

How much it takes: I will tell you that I bought 6 skeins of my main color and 5 of my contrast, the Bernat Super Value, 7 oz. skeins. At the end of strip 1, I have used almost all of 1 skein of the main color, 1/2 of the 2nd, and about 1/3? of the contrast. Since I ordered yarn specifically for this, when I am done I WILL be able to tell you how much it took me. :)

 

Amalin - alternate projects! :) Now that I'm done (just have a few more ends to weave in) with a baby-ghan, I will be doing this: Monday - green/grey flannel-ghan; Tuesday - hoodie; Wednesday - black/blue flannel-ghan; Thursday - cross stitch picture; Friday - pictures. Weekends will be anything goes, provided I am done with all my homework! :lol

 

Which reminds me...I'm supposed to be studying right now....

i sorta do that, i'll work on one project till i'm bored with it or i run out of yarn and i'll move on to the next project. I am so close to being done with it that i keep saying a little more and i'll switch but it never happens so with this one i am going to finish it before i move on to the next one lol:hook :hook :hook :hook :hook

Amanda - ultimately, that's what I did with the baby-ghan. It's not perfect, the strips aren't all the same length, but baby won't know!! :D:D:D

The pictures are looking great. Can't wait to see more finished 'ghans. I hope you manage the one for Dora, Darski. I keep thinking I should do one for my niece's bears....
